Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) wants to probe the Federal Bureau of Investigation for “targeting” a conservative think tank without “credible allegation of a crime.” The Concerned Women for America came under attack by the FBI in 2016. Then, the FBI performed a Charity Assessment. Jordan is says the assessment was unwarranted in the first place.

According to their website, “Concerned Women for America protects and promotes Biblical values and Constitutional principles through prayer, education, and advocacy.” The group is notably pro-life, pro-Israel and against critical race theory.

First, “third-party charity rating services deemed the charity to be ‘underperform[ing],'” according to the Ohio lawmaker. As a result, in July 2016 the FBI opened an investigation on CWA. In July of this year, a heavily redacted document detailing the investigation was released. Then, Jordan penned a letter Wednesday to FBI Director Christopher Wray.

“This document raises serious questions about the FBI’s targeting of domestic civil society organizations on the basis of a third-party opinion, and not any credible allegation of a crime,” Jordan wrote. While the original investigation took place under then Director James Comey, Jordan worries that it’s dated evidence of a greater precedent at the bureau.

Now, Jordan is conducting oversight over the FBI’s Charity Assessments. As ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee he is demanding they hand over all of their unredacted assessments, including CWA’s.

In response, the organization thanked Jordan in a tweet. “Thank you, [Rep. Jordan] for your efforts on this,” it read. “Freedom and liberty are severely burdened when Americans cannot trust their government officials and institutions. We are grateful for your oversight and look forward to finally getting some answers.”

Illegal migrants in custody reaches new high: ‘We must sleep at night knowing we are the reason this nation is in trouble’

An exclusive report by the Daily Caller News Foundation reveals the number of illegal migrants in the custody of Border Patrol nationwide has surpassed 22,000 as of Tuesday evening. The Daily Caller exclusively obtained internal Customs and Border Protection (CBP) data providing the information.

The report also shows how extremely fast the numbers are rising. As of the evening of August 10 Border Control had nearly 17,000 illegal migrants in custody, up from 7,696 two months prior on June 8. Just this week there were 8,923 migrant encounters by CBP on Monday and 7,730 illegal migrants released into the country, according to the new data.

Democratic El Paso Mayor Oscar Leeser said Saturday that the city is at its “breaking point,” while Democratic Eagle Pass Mayor declared a state of emergency in recent days. Agents have also become increasingly vocal about what they are enduring. One agent stationed along the northern border said “Our duties now revolve around virtual processing and the facilitation of the inflow of illegal migration into the United States. The scenario unfolds with agents stationed at their respective posts, immersed in virtual paperwork, striving to cope with the overwhelming surge of illegal migrants, far outpacing our capacity to process them efficiently. This has rendered our border exposed and vulnerable.”

“In my extensive 13-year tenure, I find myself grappling with a reality I never envisaged. Our current circumstances defy logic; established policies, our solemn oaths, and the very essence of our professional calling have been eroded. Instead, we find ourselves relegated to mere affirmations from higher authorities, commending our efforts. The days of border patrol, the pursuit of illicit substances—what we colloquially term ‘dope’—have yielded to a role resembling that of caretakers,” the agent added.

“We are upset because what they are making us do is break our oath we pledged. They have taken our job and made it a joke. We have endangered the country in so many ways. We must sleep at night knowing we are the reason this nation is in trouble,” another agent said.
